Easter Week

Why, hello everyone!

I hope everyone had a great week!

Well, I believe the highlight for me this week is that we finally had a BAPTISM! First within our companionship! It was a super-cool spiritual experience. But, anyways...

So, Monday was a huge disappointment because we were supposed to play soccer, but we didn´t. So, it just turned into a day of relaxing and sitting around doing nothing. That night we didn´t even have a Family Home Evening, which meant a boring night.Tuesday was a looong day. We turned out having lessons all day, and we worked busy all day.

Something my companion and I have been working hard to achieve is to find 12 new people to teach every week. Not for the numbers, but to have more people to teach. This involves a lot of knocking on doors, which neither my companion and I like at all. It really is not fun to knock doors, but it´s necessary to find more people, so we do it. One of the really cool things that happened this week is that we recently started to seriously teach a friend of the kid who was baptized this week. He´s a super cool kid, and he already wants to be baptized. He already asked his dad if he could be baptized, but his dad said he wants him to learn more before he does so. That makes sense, and we still have stuff to teach him, but it´s super cool to have someone with the desire to be baptized so soon. On Saturday we had our baptism. This means we practically lost the day. We still hadn´t received the permission from his grandma, so we were freaking out about that until we got it that afternoon. Then we were stressing out even more because the chapel was being used for a stake youth activity that was supposed to last from four until six, but they started an hour late, so we weren´t happy about that. Next, our investigator didn´t show up until seven because he was at his great aunt´s house, so we were freaking out until he got there. Then, to top it all off, our mission president decides to show up for the baptism, so we were totally stressed out! But everything turned out fine, and our investigator was baptized by his uncle. It was a super spiritual experience, and I almost cried when our investigator shared his testimony. It was so STRONG! I am so happy right now for him.

Dad-I´m sorry ski season is ending. I hope you have a good week!
